ENTER Mölndal - Kvarnbyn
Kvarnbyn (”the Miller’s Village”) and the river with its almost 48 meters high rapids make up the origins of Mölndal. Already during the Middle Ages, millers used the water power to run mills and in the 17th century there were around thirty flour mills, saw mills and paper mills here. By the end of the 19th century Mölndals Kvarnby had developed into one of Sweden’s more important industrial areas.
